Please consider a year-end gift to the Women’s Giving Circle of Howard County so that we can continue to give more grants, engage more members, and strengthen the circle for the future, especially as we enter our 20th year of impact in 2022.
One option for an end-of-year gift is to sponsor our upcoming WGC 20th Anniversary Year in 2022 which supports our two signature celebratory events: WGC's March 8, 2022 Virtual Annual Celebration and our Summer 2022 Pink Party in the Park, where we will celebrate and highlight 20 years of impact. And, a sponsorship of $500 and above includes support of our upcoming 2022 State of Women and Girls in Howard County Report, which will be listed on the report website. Find sponsorship information here, starting at $200 - thank you to our 22 sponsors to date!
Thank you for supporting women, girls, and families in Howard County. We are making a greater difference together than we might otherwise make alone.
It's because of you ... thank you!
Wishing you the very best this holiday season.
